Possibly. The yard is very large and the arrangement of things described have changed.
Today I took the old mower over to the repair shop, and told him I had an offer. I knew he had people who came in asking to buy mowers, and he agreed - I'd seen one last time I was there. "And you probably have people come in who can't afford much but really need a mower - single moms with no money and a lawn to mow, looking for something used that works (or some variant on that theme)? "Yes." He nodded, he sees those also, and knows the difference between the two groups.
"I'd like to give you this mower—it has issues, but it runs, and whether you want to do any work on it or not, give or sell it low when the customer-in-need comes by." He was pleased and noted a couple of those issues he could address. I suspect, knowing this guy in passing for several years now, that he has an idea of what the used mower is worth, and will add about that much in parts or upgrade, and give or sell it very low.
And in other news, this week I exceeded my daily step quota on my fitness tracker three times this week. The dog walk each evening helps push me over the top.
